No patient should be turned away, says health minister


Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Health Alla Kali Krishna Srinivas has asked the district collectors to ensure that no patient is turned away from the hospitals on the grounds of inadequate beds.

During a video conference with collectors from seven hardest-hit districts, the minister urged them to ensure that bed strength is increased in both hospitals and COVID care centers.

“Please ensure that the results of the RT-PCR tests are published within 24 hours. The operation of the call center 104 should be monitored daily. The COVID care centers should be set up with the support of the local communities and ensure that the people who have moved to the CCC feel at home, “the minister said.

KS Jawahar Reddy, head of the state COVID control room, interacted with the collectors and DMHOs and asked them to provide details of the daily action plan.

“We will make sure that the oxygen and antiviral carpet problems are addressed. Make sure all patients are well cared for and monitor calls at 104, ”said Jawahar Reddy.

Health and Family Planning Commissioner K Bhaskar was present.
